Our route to net zero

The chemical industry is committed to delivering more sustainable solutions for a cleaner, greener society. Not only are chemicals essential components to energy-saving products but cutting emissions and transforming chemical production could have a huge impact globally.  

The chemical industry is fundamental to net-zero It provides the advanced materials used in the technologies that we, as a society, are looking to deploy to reach our climate targets. Everything from wind turbine blades to insulation to lightweight materials all rely on chemical innovation and engineering. Wherever you look in the economy, there are chemical products that are helping to decarbonise the way we live.
